Thats interesting the ba is coming out in with a new v6

"It also features higher equipment levels and a new V6 engine. "

Thats news to me, typical media.

how good would it be if Ford decepted everyone and released the BA with 4L V6!!

It would be a master stroke of cat and mouse if it happened.

I will be very ticked if it has a V6


Holden should be scared, they left themselve open to it with not enough upgrades and new styles.

It didn't say much did it. Most of it was the the journalist's opinion. Probably a Ford fan.

More importantly, i want to see Ford win races, have larger sales than Holden, better reviews etc.

Yeah some say V6 some say I6. who knows. But it has to be smoother and still be able to haul ass like the current I6. and have the same or more power. the Buick V6 is Farken shit as.

Thumbs down i hope not

I cant see ford converting to a V6. The current wheels mag gives the impression that its the same engine design but a with a DOHC head and a heavily revised bottom end. A V6 just dosent have the midrange torque of the I6. I HOPE the BA is not getting a V6.....
